The Promised Land (15)
A 18th-century Danish western set on Jutland Heath with Mads Mikkelsen in the good guy saddle.
Decommissioned and impoverished war hero Capt. Ludvig Kahlen sets out to make a livelihood by farming on the vast, uninhabitable tract of land on which seemingly nothing can grow. The drawback is that the area lies under the rule of Frederik De Schinkel, a merciless nobleman who sees Kahlen as a threat to his power. Bloodthirsty conflict breaks out between the factions led by these two men and Arcel’s artistry for epicscale period filmmaking makes for rip-roaring adventure.
